Projects in Study or Design
10th and Salt Creek Bridge Project
A recent structural evaluation has determined that the bridge would need to be replaced in order to meet the City of Lincoln's current and future vehicular and pedestrian needs. The proposed project would include removing the existing bridge and constructing a new bridge at the current location.
14th and Highway 6 Safety Improvement Project
This project will evaluate and provide safety improvements for the on-ramp to eastbound U.S. 6 (Cornhusker Highway) from N. 14th Street in the City of Lincoln. This may include reconstruction of the intersection at N. 14th Street with the eastbound U.S. Highway 6 off-ramp and portions of U.S. Highway 6.
14th Street - Warlick Blvd - Old Cheney Road Intersection Improvement Project
A first of its kind traffic design competition is being tried to improve the 14th Street/Warlick Blvd/Old Cheney Road Intersection. Safety and minimizing congestion at peak traffic flow times in the morning and afternoon are top priorities. Other key issues are improving connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists, aesthetics, minimizing right-of-way impacts, all in a cost-effective solution.
33rd & Cornhusker Transportation Study (RTSD)
The 33rd & Cornhusker Transportation Study will identify and evaluate potential railroad grade separated structures in the vicinity of N. 33rd Street & Cornhusker Highway. The purpose of the project is to eliminate train conflicts with vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians at the BNSF tracks which intersect N. 33rd Street and Adams Street just south of Cornhusker Highway (U.S. Highway 6).
56th and Colfax Storm Drain Project
This project will add a new 6-foot x 4-foot concrete box culvert north of the existing pipe along the David Murdock Trail, which will increase the overall storm drain capacity in the area. Also as part of this project, the David Murdock Trail will be upgraded from a crushed limestone trail to a 10' wide concrete trail.
56th from Pine Lake to Yankee Hill
This project includes reconstruction of 56th Street from Thompson Creek Blvd. through Yankee Hill, and improvements at the intersection of Yankee Hill Road and 56th Street.
66th and Fremont Intersection Safety Project
This project will provide needed safety improvements at the intersection of 66th Street and Fremont Street. The goal of any proposed improvements will be to improve the safety of the intersection.
West "A" from SW 40th to Coddington
Preliminary plans have been prepared for West "A" Street from just west of Coddington Avenue to just west of SW 40th Street. The plans include include curb and gutter, storm sewer, sidewalks, and right and left turn lanes where appropriate. Because funding has not been identified for right of way or construction, the project has been placed on-hold indefinitely.
The East Beltway will constitute the east leg of a circumferential freeway system around Lincoln that will be made up of Interstate 80 to the north, the Homestead Expressway (Hwy 77) to the west, and the South Beltway to the south.
South Beltway (NDOR)
The South Beltway will be a new four-lane freeway across the southern suburban area of Lincoln and Lancaster County.
West Beltway (NDOR)
The project involves upgrading existing US-77 to freeway standards from Saltillo Road, north to I-80.
Coddington and West Van Dorn Safety Project
The goal of the project is to improve safety at this high-accident location.
Highway 2 from 10th Street to Old Cheney (NDOR)
This project will repair and resurface approximately 4.36 miles of Nebraska Highway 2. The project will begin just south of the intersection with Van Dorn Street and extend southeast to just east of 56th Street.
Pine Lake from 61st to Highway 2
Pine Lake Road is proposed to be widened to four lanes from S 61st Street to Highway 2. This project is necessary to increase the capacity of this roadway as a part of the increasing development in southeast Lincoln.
US Hwy. 6 / Sun Valley Boulevard Study (NDOR)
This project is studying how to provide an efficient roadway, improve traffic operations, resolve existing roadway deficiencies, and accommodate locally adopted plans for US 6 between West 'O' Street and Cornhusker Highway.
